Amazon to adapt Lord Of The Rings for TV

15 November 2017, 03:03 | Winston Chapman

The Lord of the Rings TV series is officially a go over at Amazon and the corporate giant is clearly going all-in on making this happen

Lord of the Rings

The multi-season adaptation will feature "new story lines preceding Tolkien's The Fellowship Of The Ring", which is the first Rings book, Amazon said in a statement. Peter Jackson's trilogy reportedly earned nearly $3bn worldwide, for instance.

Amazon Studios will produce the Amazon Prime original series in conjunction with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema, a production division of Warner Bros. The online retailers/Hollywood Studio has announced that it has succeeded in acquiring the global television rights to the iconic Lord of the Rings franchise and that they will be making a multiple season TV shows.

Now, Amazon is looking for a dramatic show that could be a hit globally, much like HBO's popular fantasy series "Game of Thrones". Given the success of the film trilogy, experts are quite skeptical about how Amazon will execute its Lord of the Rings TV series.

The Lord of the Rings TV series was also confirmed by Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien estate and trust.

With Android 8.1 Oreo, when a device is running low on space, an automatic cleanup process will tidy after these unused apps. Google has updated its Google Play distribution data for the seven-day period ending November 9.

Hollywood entertainment website Deadline reported the deal came with an eye-watering upfront rights payment of around US$200 million (S$272.5 million).

This is the first time Tolkein's masterpiece will have a television series adaptation. On top of the shopped price cited by Deadline, the fantasy series of that magnitude is estimated by financial experts to cost between $100 and $150 million United States dollars to produce.

It will feature stories based on author J.R.R. Tolkien's original writings, as well as a potential spin-off series.
